  1. Can you install two DVD burners on the same system?

    Yes you can. I would put them on separate IDE channels

    Yes. It should be very easy. Just make sure you set the jumpers correctly if you put them on one channel. The burner(s) you get should come with full in-depth instructions.

    OK. I currently have a DVD burner and a CDRW drive. I want to replace the CDRW drive with another DVD burner. Is this just a straight exchange?
    Gigabyte MOB with Athlon 64x2. Plextor 712A and Lite-on CDRW. Want to add a Plextor 760A (should arrive Tuesday).

    Yes it is just make sure the jumper on the one you install is set the same as the one you remove.
